intake manifold so pissed off

i have a 99 police interceptor the intake manifold cracked at thermostat housing like everyother one out there. pulled a manifold with aluminum housing off a 99 town car which bolts up all the same got brand new intake manifold gaskets wasted 5 hours of my time and every corner of the intake manifold around gaskets is pissin out coolant like no tomorrow, needless to say im pissed off at the design and dont wanna go threw the hassle of taking it all off and have no idea why coolant is spraying out everywhere

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

Mine still has the plastic one. Did you compare both sets of gaskets and replace the gaskets? They should fit. Can't say what you did to cause that.

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

Did you tighten it with the sequence called for? It could be something got between the gasket and the surface.

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

I've put several on and never had a problem. Looks like you'll have to remove it and see what happened. There's no sealer to put on it. Just install and go.

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

If the Lincoln engine had overheating problems, could that have warped the manifold he's trying to use?

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

We haven't had any warped intakes on even overheated engines. Of course none of the engines were overheated so much they damaged the engine itself.

Re: intake manifold so pissed off

look for anther plastic used one to replace it you may have to have the aluminum intake shaved down to match the block if it is an after market intake
